DESCRIPTIONPenalty Enforcement. Status of Ball and Plays - PowerPoint PPT Presentation
Status of Ball and Plays
Status of the ball there are only two possibilities its either a live ball foul or a dead ball foul. Unsportsmanlike fouls may occur while the ball is live or dead. Whatever the status of the ball, unsportsmanlike fouls are enforced as if they occurred after the play was over.
When the ball is live, one of two types of plays occurs: a loose ball play or running play.A loose ball play is action during a free kick or scrimmage kick, a legal forward pass, a backward pass (including the snap), an illegal kick or fumble by team A from in or behind the neutral zone prior to a change of team possession. The run or runs that proceed a legal or illegal kick, legal forward pass, backward pass or fumble is considered part of a loose ball play.A post-scrimmage kick (PSK) foul is a special king of loose ball play and has special enforcement.
Any other play is considered a running play.
SPOTSPrevious Spot is just what the name implies point at which the ball was last put in play by snap or free kick.
Succeeding Spot point at which ball will next be put in play either by snap or free kick.
Basic Spot point of reference for penalty enforcement. For a loose ball play other than PSK, the basic spot is the previous spot. The basic spot is the end of the run for a running play.
Dead Ball Spot spot under the foremost point of the ball when it becomes dead by rule.
PSK Spot where the kick ends.
All But One PrincipalFor many fouls, the enforcement spot is given as part of the statement of the penalty. Example encroachment, illegal shift, illegal motion are always enforced from the previous spot. But for many fouls, the rule book refers to the basic spot, not a specific location on the field. Those penalties are enforced according to the three-and-one principal, referred to as the all-but-one principal.
All-but-one determines the spot from which the penalty is stepped off. Key to using that principal if the notion of the basic spot. The basic spot is not a fixed location on the field; its a benchmark for locating the enforcement spot and varies according to the type of play.
The basic spot (except for PSK) can only be either the previous spot of the end of the run; there are no other candidatesAll But One PrincipalFor running plays in which the run ends beyond the neutral zone, the basic spot is the end of the run. Same is true for running plays when there is no neutral zone, kick returns, interception returns and other plays involving change of team possessionFor running plays which end behind the neutral zone, the basic spot is the end of the runFor legal forward pass plays and for kick plays that do not involve PSK, the basic spot is the previous spot.If the team that does not have the ball commits a foul, enforce the penalty from the basic spot regardless of where the foul happens.If the team in possession commits a foul, the enforcement spot depends on where the foul was committed. If it happens beyond the basic spot, go back to basic spot for enforcement. If it occurs behind the basic spot, enforce from the spot of the foul.
All But One Principal
Applying the all-but-one principal is easy when you follow the recipe: Where is the basic spot, and where did the foul occur in relation to the basic spot? Answering those questions will allow you to correctly enforce any penalty that is governed by the all-but-one principal.Live Ball Foul by Team AAt or beyond end of the runBehind end of the runPenalty enforced from end of the runPenalty enforced from spot of the foul End of the run or foul in team As end zoneSafetyFouls During Running PlaysLive Ball Foul by Team BPenalty enforced from end of the runAnywhereEnd of the run or foul in team As end zoneEnforce from team As goal lineIfIfRunning Play Team A FoulsFirst and 10 for team A from its own 20.

Legal forward pass to A2 is complete to B 45. A2 fumbles at B45 but recovers at B 40. Roughing passer is called on B2.
Where is dead ball spot?Either team fouls during the kickPenalty enforced from previous spot.Fouls on Free Kick PlaysEither team fouls after the kick ends (ball does not become loose during the run)Foul occurs behind end of the runFoul occurs beyond end of the runFoul by team KPenalty enforced from end of the runFoul by team RPenalty enforced from spot of the foulPenalty enforced from end of the runK free kicks from its own 40. R5 catches kick on own 5 and returns to team A 40. During run, R6 clips at team Rs 10.
Fouls that occur after the receivers catch or recover the free kick are fouls during a running play. Enforce team R foul from spot of foul.
Team K free kicks from its 40. R1 holds while ball is in flight. R2 catches ball on 5 and returns to team R 20.
Type of play?K will re kick after 10 yd penalty is enforced from previous spot. If K declines, teams R ball 1st and 10 from 20.

First and 10 for team A from its 40. A1 advances to A 45 when B2 grabs and twist A1 facemask. A1 reaches 50 and fumbles, where B3 recovers the loose ball.
Because B fouled prior to gaining possession, it cannot keep the ball. Ball is returned to A and penalty is enforced from the spot of the fumble. Team A ball first and 10 from B 35.
